Every other weekend, I go
to my dad’s apartment with my brother. Sometimes my two other older brothers
come over, too.
Recently, we were all watching TV when a commercial with this
woman came on. My dad and brothers were hooting and saying stuff that made me
really mad. I almost called my mother to pick me up.
Dear Surrounded by Boys,
Since it’s worth it to get along with
the males in your family, I hope you can get them to act more appropriately,
but I also hope you can learn to handle their juvenile banter with humor and
grace. Consider saying, “Hey guys, keep it clean,” or “This is a living room
not a locker room,” or “There’s a lady present.” Even saying “Grow up,” or
“You’re making me uncomfortable” beats leaving in a huff. Ideally they’ll rein
themselves in, and you will continue to enjoy family time.
